- Wedding: August 2013
Hey Bee’s, I need some advice…….
I am not afraid to say I am a Daddy’s girl. My Dad is my best friend, and other than my FI, is the one constant hard rock in my life. Maybe because I am so attached to my Father I seem to be having this problem of speaking up.
My Father and Step-Mom are artists of multiple mediums. He paints, blows glass, tin work, she knits, crochets, quilts and sews. They do this as their hobbies but sell their goods in galleries, major craft shows and their own booths at flea markets, trade shows etc. He is very talented, and I have always been his biggest fan. I have alot of items in my home that he has made me.
When I got engaged my Father and Step Mom said they wanted to make some items for the wedding to help with the budget and add that home made flare. I agreed, but said I wanted to know their ideas before they committed to anything and I would like to see mock ups of anything so they weren’t wasting money on anything and so I know it would fit with everything else.
I was speaking to my Father last week and he told me had several items made already. He told me not to worry about the guestbook, favours and bridal party jewelry and that he was working on more stuff too. I asked him if the items were done and he said yes. He won’t show them to me because he would like it to be a surprise.
What would you do? I am over the moon he is helping and is excited about the wedding, but I’m also nervous because what if its something that doesn’t go with the theme or colour scheme at all? I really don’t want to hurt his feelings, is there a delicate way to go about this? Should I really just grin and bare it?
